New York indulges in ‘Borne’ spree

The Bourne series is back, this time with Jeremy Renner in Universal’s “The Bourne Legacy.”

“Writing chase scenes are fun because you get to play with toy cars on a table with a bunch of grown men and figuring out how to blow things up,” scribe-helmer Tony Gilroy said at the July 30 preem at the Ziegfeld.

“They’re very difficult to do, because everyone’s seen lots of them,” said producer Patrick Crowley, who’s worked on all four films. “And so, if you pull off a chase scene that no one’s ever seen before and the audience applauds at the end of it, you go ‘ah ha.’ After 30, 40 years of making movies, if you can still do that, you’re doing something right.”

They must have done something right on “The Bourne Legacy,” since the preem aud clapped for some scenes.

Guests were later shuttled to the afterparty at the Four Seasons, where it was a spy affair as gawkers huddled around to get a look at Bond himself, Daniel Craig.
